Gay man jailed for attacking husband on wedding day following row about mother-in-laws
A 22-year-old man in the northern French city of Alencon has been jailed for attacking his new husband just hours after tying the knot.
On what should have been a day of wedding bless, Sapa-AFP reports the victim said he was head-butted and then repeatedly hit whilst lying on the ground in an attack which followed a heavy drinking session.
The incident was apparently triggered by a row about the respective mother-in-laws.
The victim appealed on the court to show leniency towards his new spouse, who also attacked two police officers, however the defendant was given a two-year prison term, six months of which were suspended.
